ingredients for rose custard and fruit salad on a white countertop
Step 1

For the rose custard, bring milk, cream and rose water to boil over medium heat in a saucepan. Remove from heat and set the mixture aside.

Step 2

In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, sugar and corn starch until pale, thick and creamy.

Step 3

Pour a little of the creamy rose water mixture into the egg mixture (this prevents the eggs from cooking). Then, add the rest of the creamy rose water mixture, whisk, and transfer back to the saucepan.

Step 4

Cook over medium heat, whisking continuously until it thickens slightly.

Step 5

Transfer the mixture to a bowl and cover the surface of the custard with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
